Two Year Prison Term For Jail Attack On Hougom Murder Witness
Two years in prison is the sentence for a 22-year-old man convicted of attacking a witness in a La Crosse murder case...
Pao Choua Vue was one of two men found guilty of attacking Lucas Brickl in the county jail, after Brickl implicated Vue's cousin in the Sara Hougom murder last year. Vue apologized for the attack, saying he got into a 'stupid situation' because of peer pressure. Judge Ramona Gonzalez warns that if anyone connected to Vue tries to go after Brickl again, Vue will have to serve five years behind bars instead of just two. The other defendant in the beating received probation.
